Focus is a solo auditory experience. We struggle as a society to spend time alone with ourselves and self-reflect. We live in a world full of distractions. Now, during this epidemic, our hunger for connection is more than ever. We rely on our screens - consuming media to distract us from the present, waiting for the vibrations of validation and the craving of authentic communication. What does it actually take to put your phone down and be still?
This project received financial support from the National Theatre School of Canada via the Art Apart program, an emergency fund for emerging artists who are affected by physical distancing due to coronavirus (COVID-19).
